Curriculum Intent 

At Chellaston Junior School, we ask, “Why?”. Our curriculum is based upon developing enquiring minds.
Through our curriculum, we teach our pupils core knowledge, which then equips them with the ability to showcase their reasoning skills. We want our children to ask ‘why?’ and develop their independence and resilience to answer their own questions for themselves.

We encourage and foster pupils’ creative thinking, allowing them to explore and respond to the world we live in, through the curiosity of asking ‘why?’

At Chellaston Junior School, we never put a ceiling on what pupils can achieve; we stretch them so that each pupil can reach their full potential. We adapt our curriculum to suit the needs of all our learners. Our adaptations allow equality of opportunity for every child; no pupil is left behind.
